We are Passengers
Metalcore / Djent Band from Lancaster UK
Based in Lancaster UK, the Passengers story is one of persistence to find the right pieces from within a small local scene. Finally rounding out the line-up in early 2018, Passengers arrived - and what a welcome they’ve had. Their live debut on September 9th 2018 saw the band share the stage with Martyr Defiled as part of their final farewell show, setting a high precedent from the off.
Drawing influence from a range of Alternative sub-genres, Passengers combine the aggression of contemporary Metalcore, the gut-loosening heaviness of Djent and the ambience and creativity of Post-Rock, all fired atop a hotbed of contemporary electronics/synths, the band have created a sonically infectious sound which fans and listeners have rapidly identified with.
In the month’s following Passengers debut release, they have appeared on the cover CD of the legendary Metal Hammer magazine, who also put the band forward to a public vote to play Wembley Arena hosted by Progress Wrestling, in which they placed 2nd out of over 100+ bands, not bad for a band that only finalised the line up 7 months previous. The debut single Boundaries has currently racked up over 19,000 streams on Spotify without any official playlist help, and has set the scene nicely for new single ‘Faces of Janus’ which lands on December 1st 2018.
If these achievements are anything to go by Passengers are set to become an inimitable force.
